A LOCAL food bank has issued an urgent appeal for donations of toiletries to help people using its services as its supplies run low. 

Old Kilpatrick Food Parcels (OKFP) shared a photograph of its "sad toiletries shelf" on social media on Thursday appealing to kind-hearted Bankies to help volunteers restock the shelves.

Those interested in donating can do so by dropping donations directly to the charity which is located on Station Road in Old Kilpatrick or via its Amazon wishlist which can be found HERE.

Alternatively, donations can be made by visiting OKFP's website HERE.
